Kenya: Sex offenders’ register to help curb the vice

The catalogue of heartbreaking reports on defilement that continue to pour in from across the counties make for depressing reading. …It’s time Parliament seriously considered establishing a sex offenders registry for all accused and convicted sex offenders to brand the accusers who currently easily get away with the crime. Full Opinion Piece

    Fear over empirical evidence. So this is how it begins, but US is one of its parents. Rather than correcting itself, it chooses to say the following rhetoric, “there are many not reported” – even so, the re-offense rate is quite low as its starting point.

    Again, fear over empirical evidence.

    Now factor in the chemical castration in Guam… which is under US protection, IIRC, can do so very blindly? Will the US govt correct itself? Too large? Will California correct itself, especially when over 99% of sex offenders registrants do not sexually re-offend? Or will it continue to have a blind eye and deaf ears to empirical evidence as the scare tactics is ballooning every where in the US and world wide?

    Article says “Sex offenders convicted in one county would be required to register within, say, two weeks of moving to another county.”

    We can say ‘2 weeks’, but as we see in the US, the Chris Kelly types ( I say types, but I think he is almost unique, save John Walsh and Lauren/Ron Book in his hatred and vitriol of registrants ) will attempt to make it a window of 1 day or even less, if permitted by politicians succeptible to Chris Kelly type corruption.

    “This way, we will stem the tide of growing defilement cases and protect our children from predators”

    But the opposite will happen, as we saw in the victims of the Desert Christian Academy ( Runners’ school ) molestations. The false sense of security built by these draconian, counter-productive laws will make it all the more easier for non-registrants to commit sex crimes using sex registries as distractions for the 95+% of sex crimes they commit.

    “The information would then be accessed to the public when needed. For example, if you suspect a teacher is abusing children, you could request the police to confirm if the individual is a registered sex offender. If confirmed, the information would form the basis of a police investigation.”

    Or just do a criminal backround check before hiring them. If someone is convicted, their record will indicate their conviction. If you suspect a teacher is abusing children, that should be investigated regardless of the suspected perpetrators past record. Actually, if a perpetrator does not have a record, it means they probably did not get therapy for their problem and may also be operating under a false sense of security felt by the community by concentrating on the distraction of former offenders who are no longer a threat.

    “The information in the registry would be shared with a school administration if the offender lives within, say, five-kilometre radius of the institution”

    This author can’t even wait for a registry to be created to start brainstorming for counter-productive add-ons. Internet identifiers next? I wonder if FaceBook’s presence in all these foreign countries is fueling this. And if that is the case, FaceBook’s Ireland tax shelter, where FaceBook only pays 2% international profits to the United States, looks to be the vehicle to fund this meddling in the affairs of foreign governments.
